Nana’s video art lessons enhance the learning already happening in your home! Here is how you can reinforce history, science and so much of what you are already studying.


If you can visualize a 4th-grade Nana from years ago, come sit next to her and see how much fun maps and geography are! I can show you how to outline the contours of continents and islands and you will say, “I Drew It, Then I Knew It!” It really is fun and you will be surprised at how much you learn!


There have been 45 men to hold the office of United States President. There are those that are not familiar to us at all. We will be detectives and find out interesting and maybe even surprising facts about these men! We are going to draw each President, chat about him and you will be able to sit down at dinner and tell your family presidential facts. Did you know that President James Madison was only 5’3” tall?


Vermeer, Warhol, Grandma Moses, Degas…Wow! These folks are artists that we might have heard of and they were REAL people. These artists became famous because of their skills as an artist! Come along through history and let’s use our pastels to see how they might have seen a girl with a pearl earring or even a famous tomato soup can!

What Others Are Saying

“In someways it’s like watching Bob Ross, just for kids!” – Dawn Peluso

“From age 30(+ a few) down to my newly 4yo, our entire household is enjoying chalk pastels. It’s the first time in my life I’ve ever considered that I might fit the “you ARE an artist” tagline! I’m so thankful for having found you for my kids and myself!”– Maria Toomey

On Instagram…

“This is the quietest my kids have been all day! They concentrated on their American history chalk pastel pieces. I love this program! It allows me to intentionally include art with our studies yet frees me up from being the teacher!” – Maureen Spell

“”Oh mama, I never thought I could love art more! But, now I do!” Smiley, my little Bob Ross-wanna be, after our first lesson with Chalk Pastels: Art at the Beach. All the boys (3,6,8,12,14) were able to do this homeschool art lesson together. This homeschool mama is thrilled! We all had such fun working on this project and can’t wait to do another tomorrow.” – Amy Milcic


*This annual membership is designed for use by one family. For co-op and group pricing, please see our You ARE an Artist Co-Op Program.

    “The Glowing Christmas Tree was our very first Chalk Pastel lesson that we did. We did it last year around Christmas time and we were hooked. We are now annual club members and loving our weekly art lessons. We are so grateful for these lessons. 💗” – Christie Espie

    We simply needed more Nana, so we had to subscribe. It is supposed to be art lessons, but for us it has been peace and order and, at last, simple joy.

    Sixteen years as a homeschooler with nine children I have had my share of crazy. This year was going to be different. I found Pam Barnhill, I had license to buy mountains of marvelous books, we were going to do art—finally—and drown ourselves in the Middle Ages. Bliss.

    So, of course, my husband gets the dream job offer, we pick up and leave 11 years of an amazing support network, parents, and three of our children to move eight hours away. Time from acceptance letter to new house in new state? 23 days.

    The week after Thankgiving, I finally sat the children down for the first lesson….and it starts: our 12-year-old is our second artist, (they don’t get from me) and he knows ALL about pastels…nobody does them….they are messy….they are boring…they are stuuuupid….Oy vey.

    Ignoring him, I start with the introduction by accident. And there is Nana and I just watch. Watch as this woman, with her lovely, soft, Southern drawl, sucks this kid in like an undertow. First he stops complaining, a miracle in itself. Then he starts meandering over to the table. Then he leans on his chair. When she finishes he announces that he will do this lesson if he can show his siblings how HE draws dragons, which he does, with great patience. !

    Totally unexpectedly, these lessons have become an anchor. I have something they can all do that is brief but focused, fun but productive. They get a complete, tangible proof of effort. I put their drawings in sheet protectors and we will watch as they progress through the year.

    A little breakfast, a little prayer, a little Nana. Priceless.

    I didn’t purchase the Annual Clubhouse Membership on a whim! We had already tried out Nana’s free samplers as well as purchased the wonderful Shark Unit already and I asked my little one (4.5 years then) if he wanted more. “Absolutely, I Love painting with Nana” was his answer and I didn’t hesitate to get the Clubhouse, and then it was on a heavy, sweet seasonal discount too!
    The Clubhouse membership gives access to so many beautiful courses that you could include into your (homeschool or otherwise) study. It also includes the season’s special courses as well as Pond study, Birds, Backyard animals, History, Geography and more. Recently while doing a month’s study of Impressionism we used the Art Techniques Course(don’t miss that one) and Nana’s introduction and demonstration of Impressionism made a real “impression” on the child even though he has never seen a real painting before! We used her techniques and tips to make a Monet’s garden display.
    After starting with these classes, we have been paying more attention to our beautiful illustrated books, and making us confident in even trying out our favorite ones in pastel. This is just the confidence and attention to detail that I wanted in my child as an artist.
    Adding on to the above, I must not leave out this particular feature of Nana’s video lessons and why they appeal to us. Nana has an unhurried, soft, homely way of demonstrating to the child. There is no fast motion video, no jarring musical background, nothing that would make you feel you are miles away from her home.
    I also love this intergenerational bond that Lessons with Nana brings.

  4. Daffadowndilly

    My artists adore Nana, especially my youngest. Her classes are warm and encouraging, and she makes art attainable and a joy. Thanks for sharing her, she’s a treasure. 🥰

  5. thestein2015 (verified owner)

    Have any of you followed along with one of Nana’s art tutorials before? They are FANTASTIC!! She truly makes you feel like YOU are an artist! She’s calm and relaxing…just like watching Bob Ross! 🤓 #nomistakesonlyhappyaccidents 🌲
    We are loving our membership! One of the best things I’ve added to our homeschool this year!

  6. Sara McClure

    Depending on the time of the day, the Clubhouse has helped us kickstart our day with something fun or helped us unwind from a long day of school. My youngest, who has Sensory Processing Disorder, will often use the Clubhouse during his listening therapy for SPD. We love making art with Nana!

  7. Kara Anderson

    So, the thing is, I kind of want Nana to adopt us. But, we have the next best thing, which is Nana coming to our kitchen table.

    This week when we started up again after a summer break, my daughter’s eyes lit up when she saw Nana on screen.

    We all love these courses so much, and I love that Nana does the teaching, so I can paint too!
